Ongoing learning shows us that the world is changing and that we continuously have to reinvent and rewire. When I read a book by Thomas Friedman entitled "The World is flat," I learned much about our global world and how we're all connected to one another. I was especially intrigued when he said, "You cannot remain analog in this digital world." It's true. A person who keeps learning is a person who doesn't stand still. As the years pass, we can either rewire or retire. If we wish to keep our minds alert and alive we have to continue to be active learners at every age.

I talk about learning by reading and by listening to others, but there's also a special way of learning that's tied to the creative side each of us has. When I started painting, I began to see the world with new eyes. I took the time to carefully observe nature and the things around me. Now, years later, I take pleasure in noticing new things each day. My world constantly expands and becomes more fascinating. Whether you're a painter or a poet or a photographer or a musician, you can find great inspiration in the world around you. Your creative side urges you to look and listen and discover, and each new discovery nurses and bolsters your creative side.

The joy and power that comes from learning are vital for creative success. Many years ago I came across a wonderful book by Hal Urban, Life's Greatest Lessons: 20 things I Want My Kids to Know. The title was so catchy that I was compelled to buy it. Discussing success in one of the chapters, Urban wrote that, "success is more than making money" and explained what it was that successful people actually did. At one point, he explained that, "successful people have a strong desire to learn about life, the world and themselves." I couldn't agree more! If you keep learning things that matter, then you know you are leading a successful and productive life.
